Food was authentic and delicious! Proportions were smaller than I expected. Ambiance was dark, candle lit, romantic environment. We are upstairs and got the round table in the corner for a party of 6, it was perfect.

Our waiter was tremendous, really made the experience amazing. He was attentive, knowledgable and charming. The app we enjoyed was a duck prosciutto, so good. Red Beet pasta and Duck for entrees. Both were amazing. Wine was amazing and he even took the time to explain it's serendipitous origins.

Went as family of four, including two kids who are enthusiasts for authentic Italian -- think Boston's "North End." In short, Barrique left everyone very satisfied, from the early evening outdoor ambiance to the excellent dishes. My daughter declared the pasta with Norma sauce was the best pasta dish she'd ever had. Great local place in a happening neighborhood.

Great food and great wines. We originally had a party of 4 and that grew to a party if 6 plus a child. They accommodated us without a hesitation. My wife and I split the octopus appetizer, rabbit tagliatelle, and the branzino. All three were great and had distinct flavors. We sat outside and there were enough heaters to keep everyone comfortable. Highly recommend it.

Excellent food. Authentic Italian cuisine with a good wine list. We had the watercress salad and halibut. Both excellent!! The only complaint is that we waited 30 minutes for our bill.

We had such a nice experience at Barrique. Our server, Michael, was fabulous. We had a special night for my boyfriend's birthday and he really treated us well. We got the duck prosciutto, quail ragu, and the black linguine. The pasta was perfectly cooked. The quail ragu was so rich and delicious. And the wine was fabulous as well! We sat on the upstairs veranda outside and it was perfect with the outdoor heaters on. I'd go again!

Barrique is charming and the food delicious. It's a little cramped in the dining room--
tables close together--and you have to go up narrow stairs--but otherwise we found
it outstanding. Delicious pasta specials and our waiter was very attentive and charming
and three-chocolate mousse very good. I plan to go again soon!

There are strict rules here. You must order your entire meal at the same time. We wanted the two appetizers brought separately but was told it is a small kitchen and they could not do that. They did not bring our entree until we were done and also asked if we wanted to wait. Service was outstanding. The pasta with rabbit and prunes and mushrooms was outstanding

One of our favorites in Venice. Seasonal dishes thoughtfully prepared and excellent service. The gem lettuce and hearts of palm salad and grilled fish was completely devoured and the wine suggested was delicious and something I wouldn't have found without their help.

I don't think I would recommend Barrique for a party of two. I really enjoyed Barrique but the one issue is the tables. The tables for two are ridiculously close to the other tables. It seems they are trying to get too many in and privacy for diners is paying the price. I don't know that I would ever go again if it's just two of us because you are literally dinning with the people at the next table.

This place is special! Every morsel of food was absolutely delicious from the Sea Bass special to the truffle pasta and even the Filet my daughter ordered. The selection of Italian wines is excellent and the service and attention to detail were top notch. I can’t say enough about how great this place is. As someone who has spent a great deal of time in Italy I can honestly say you’d be hard pressed to beat Barrique Venice anywhere in the US.

This wonderful restaurant has gone to s**t! One of my favorite restaurants just handed me one of the worst dining experiences on an evening of a special occasion for guests I invited. I was absolutely embarrassed! First, the inexperienced waiter tried to slip by a cheaper bottle of wine that was not what I ordered. Then the food I ordered was overcooked and the service was non-existent. And finally when I received the bill I was overcharged for what I ordered. I will not be returning and suggest you save yourself the heartache. Such a shame!
